GORE® PYRAD® Protective Garments: Class 2 Arc Rated PPE Designed To Last

t's a complex process kiting out electrical workers in PPE. Once safety regulations and risk assessments are reviewed and adhered to, then comes the pressure or temptation to buy products that are the cheapest option available. A quick fix, yes but false economy, most certainly. Durable protection from quality garments will last longer, need replacing less and

charge/discharge cycles than conventional lead-acid batteries and thus guarantees a particularly long service life. The high- quality battery pack impresses both in industrial use and in medical technology applications with its approvals according to IEC/EN 62133-2:2017 and UL 62133:2017 Ed.2. 4S1P Li-Ion Battery pack mit 14.8 V / 2.5 Ah / 37 Wh The BP-LIO-1525 has an integrated BMS (Battery

The NTC temperature sensor, which is led outside, enables permanent monitoring of the Li-Ion cell temperature for charging optimization and operational safety. In terms of system integration and economy (TCO), Lithium-Ion cells enable energy storage devices with space and weight savings of up to 75% – compared to conventional lead-acid batteries.

offer value for money compared to purchasing cheaper less technical options which at best, will quickly wear out and at worst, not actually provide the correct protection levels needed. Established and trusted PPE manufacturers will offer wearer trials for end users but also provide scientific proof of the durability and safety of their products. Take, for example, Arc rated GORE® PYRAD® Protective Clothing. These multi norm coveralls, jackets

and trousers undergo a series of rigorous tests, including the Open Arc Test and the Box Test at both Class 1 and Class 2 before being fit for purpose. Tests for durability, breathability and laundering longevity ensure that the garments will last, remain comfortable and continuously provide high level protection. Added up, this represents much better value in the long run.

Wieland’s wienet Managed Switches provide full

network control M

anaged Switches from Wieland Electric allow

full control and diagnosis of industrial Ethernet networks. By means of standard ring topology, the switches allow redundant topologies and thereby boost network availability. These switches offer protection against unauthorised access/data traffic, greater resilience and prioritisation of data with real-time requirements.

wienet Managed Switches support processes including

ERPS, RSTP, STP and MRP for Profinet networks (certified up to Conformance Class B) and are adapted for Ethernet IPs. Different port variants from 10/100 Base- T(X) RJ45 ports to variable SFP ports and even Gigabit Combo ports allow for optimal adaptation to the application environment. The full PoE+ performance of 30 W can be tapped with a 51 VDC power supply up to a maximum of 8 ports. The switches meet the highest requirements with their operating temperature range of - 20°C to 75°C as well as their excellent MV properties. The wienet Managed Switches support clock synchronisation according to IEEE 1588 PTP and are also ideally suited to Motion Control applications.
